DON FABIO & PROJECT ORIGIN
Honduran coffee producer and partner of Project Origin, Don Fabio Caballero has taken first place in the Honduras Cup of Excellence program for 2018.
Announced on June 1 in San Pedro Sula, this is the first time renowned producer Don Fabio has claimed the highest award in the Cup of Excellence (COE) program. The COE-winning coffee scored 93.43 points, one of the highest scores ever awarded in the Honduran chapter of the program. His winning farm, San Francisco is located in Marcála and sits at an altitude of 1300-1450masl. Having won several awards in past COE events, Don Fabio has refrained from entering competitions for spent several years, focusing on maintaining his farms and embarking on new projects.
His family is no stranger to awards; his daughter Marysabel is a producer of high-quality coffee, having taken first place in the Cup of Excellence (Honduras) program in 2016. Don Fabio also operates other farms in Marcala, including Las Virginias and Mogola. Marcala can be quite cold due to its high altitude, which makes it beneficial for the growth and slow development of the coffee. A wide range of premium qualities are produced on these farms, ranging from 84 to 90+ point-scoring coffees.
ABOUT SAN FRANCISCO
San Francisco is a farm covered with 50 year old plants, that yield low quantities of coffee per tree. Farmer, Don Fabio, likens the cherries to children and the trees to parents who provide the cherries with food from the soil. When there are less cherries it is easier for the tree to provide each cherry with the best possible nutrients. This gives San Francisco its structured acidity and highly refined flavour.
